Thanks to workman for a recent post that inspired me to put together these examples of vintage toy “Space Guns”. Some squirted water, some just made a clicking noise, others shot out sparks, [my fave], and the middle one blew bubbles. I think I might have owned one like the red, yellow and blue one.

Quotes from Groucho Marx…
"Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana."
"From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend to read it."
"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How hw got in my pajamas I’ll never know."
"Humor is reason gone mad."

In “Space Program: Mars,” Tom Sachs fills the Park Avenue Armory with a kind of childhood fantasy gesamptkunstwerk — a collection of space travel modules impeccably replicated in everyday materials. The artist takes a clear joy in the work. In his role as mission commander, he orders an army of assistants to make repairs, give demonstrations, and answer any and all space travel-related questions.
